Terex has launched a dedicated Website for the purchase of used equipment.
The site — www.terex.com/used — allows construction contractors to access spec information, photos and MSRP on used construction, roadbuilding and aerial work platform equipment for sale through Terex. A complete inventory of used equipment for sale through Terex is available on the site.
“We know that customers today are making equipment decisions differently because of the economy,” says John Poag, operations sales manager, Terex Construction Americas, in a written statement. “Savvy contractors know that buying used equipment can be a smart way to reduce investment cost and increase profit margins.”
To determine if now is the right time to invest in “new” used equipment, Poag suggests that customers do a simple acquisition cost versus utilization rate analysis.
“Some questions to consider are: Will this piece of equipment allow you to do more specialized jobs? Will it allow you to do your current jobs more quickly and efficiently? Will having this piece of equipment allow you to do jobs that your competitors are not capable of,” Poag says in a written statement. “All of these questions will help determine if used is a better option than new.”
Once a customer selects a piece of equipment to purchase from www.terex.com/used, representatives from Terex Construction Americas and Terex Financial Services enlist the customer’s nearest authorized Terex distributor to complete the sale.
“Our goal is to connect our customers with Terex distributors for financing, service, parts and future equipment needs,” Poag says.
